Overview

Staffing is one of the biggest issues facing companies moving into the global market today. This book provides a multi-disciplinary, integrated and critical discussion-based analysis of current and emerging issues in global staffing.

It critically examines best practice and leading approaches, drawing on research from a range of disciplines including international strategy, management, HRM and organizational theory. The key theme of localization is also examined along with the complex associated implementation issues in a number of different regions.

This text takes a truly international approach, giving students of HRM and international business an in-depth understanding of the processes of global staffing.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
‘Staffing is a key HRM activity critical for understanding organisations and organisational performance. This book, written inspiringly, makes a unique contribution through its wide range of classical as well as contemporary topics, its critical research focus and the coherent themes running through the book. It provides a truly global perspective, thus combining much of the existing knowledge – highly recommended for researchers, practitioners and students interested in the field!’ - Wolfgang Mayrhofer, Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien, Vienna, Austria
